Intravenous (IV) access devices are utilized by physicians to deliver medication to the patients’ bloodstream through the intravenous route and also to withdraw blood for testing purpose. Therapies administered intravenously are often included in the designation of specialty drugs. Intravenous infusions are commonly referred to as drips because many systems of administration employ a drip chamber, which prevents air from entering the blood stream (air embolism), and allows an estimation of flow rate. Intravenous therapy may be used to correct electrolyte imbalances, to deliver medications, for blood transfusion or as fluid replacement to correct, for example, dehydration. Intravenous therapy could also be used for chemotherapy. The rising global incidence rates of chronic diseases such as cancer, diabetes, and cardiovascular disorders, along with acute infectious diseases, has tremendously increased the demand for IV access devices used to administer drugs to patients.
